Name: Detlef Holzmann
ic! berliner since: forever (2006)
Why did you apply to work at ic! berlin? Why did you want to work here?
I wear glasses and was fascinated by the product, but also by how glasses can change people. There are a lot of different people from a lot of different backgrounds at ic! and it makes for a really interesting and relaxed work environment. Plus Ralph is a creative wonder boy and I though it would be fun to work for him.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Pumping loud rock-n-roll through my headphones.
And what song did you last pump through your headphones?
When the Lady Smiles by Golden Earring.
If you could have any animal in the world as a pet, what would it be?
A sabre-tooth squirrel.
If you weren’t an ic! berliner – and money wasn’t an issue – what would you do with your life?
I would engage myself in the community, maybe as an environmental activist.
It’s noon on a Sunday. Where are you?
It’s always changing, but usually on the golf course, cruising around Berlin on my scooter, or at home.
What did you last splurge on?
It was ages ago, but my scooter.
